Bright Side, Day One

Monday, November 28, 2011
I'm leaving this morning for points east, in yet another attempt to close The Deal that Apparently Never Ends™. This is, of course, after working nights and weekends for the last two weeks in pursuit of the same goal.

I've decided to look on the bright side, though. I've been getting crankier and crankier on a professional level, and the time has come to clean out my mind and vacuum away all the crap that gives me hypertension. So I'm going to address some BRIGHT SIDE issues while I'm traveling in the hope that they will help to manage the seething tension that has become my professional life.

DAY ONE: I didn't have to work on Thanksgiving Day. Instead, I spent the day with members of my family whom I love and enjoy, eating tasty food and visiting.

I would also add that the TSA doesn't allow you to travel armed - that's a bright spot too - although a hostile takeover of the whole process might indeed be a bonus at this point.

I usually start with "I woke up today, I am alive" but that's just me!

East coast travel? Near my camp? You could come and visit! See, instant bright side!

For some reason I'm singing "The Brighter Side of Life" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlBiLNN1NhQ.

I'm in Rochester, and working 16 hours a day. So no visit to the camp for me...

Jaeri, she can check the .45 in her luggage, that's perfectly legal. :D
